## TEACHERS

### Congratulations and a heartfelt thank you for taking the time and showing your love and interest in your child’s education.

CiaCyberOps was developed as a covert operation to teach youngsters mathematics without them knowing that they were being taught. We have discovered, as many of you have, that children learn best when they are having fun, when they want to learn, and they learn best by being taught how they learn (rather than how we teach).

Have you ever seen scores of youngsters gathered around a table playing Pokemon or Magic the Gathering? These are a couple examples of collectible card games that kids seem to be enthralled with now-a-days. Quite simply they love these types of games. They are quick, easy to learn and easy to play. However they have very few, if any, redeeming qualities. In fact many mothers would tell you that they dislike the idea of their little ones playing with monsters, magic, dragons, and evil creatures all day.

CiaCyberOps is an expandable card game that is just as addictive yet teaches kids to learn math, logic, reasoning, strategy, and cooperation, without all the “battles to the death” and “spell casting”.

The game has been designed with this one goal in mind… to encourage your child to learn and enjoy math. The game mechanics have been designed from the ground up to encourage more learning. For example: the Hacker Points in the upper left-hand corner of the card will help the player to program their computers faster. The Hacker Points are weighted towards the more difficult cards. So, as Johnny wants to do better at the game and compete better with his friends he will soon **want to learn** how the higher Hacker Point cards work. You will find that you may want to make yourself available, at least at first, for the onslaught of questions.

Relax, you don’t have to understand how to play (they will have that figured out in no time) they will come to you wanting to know what the little number that is raised above the big number means (exponents) and so on. Believe it or not, unlike school, you will only have to explain it once or twice because **they will WANT to know** what that means

Imagine your child, or grandchild, begging to do just one more math lesson before bedtime. Imagine them shunning the Disney channel because they want to figure out the best way calculate algebraic equations. Well now this can be a reality in your house too. Your kids will not want to put down the cards. All the time absorbing math lessons without even knowing it.

In CiaCyberOps your kids will be exposed to a complete array of math and math related subjects up to an including the 5th grade levels. Below is partial list of the topics included in CiaCyberOps. All cleverly concealed as game cards that they will want to understand.

My son enjoys card games such as Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon.

He was introduced to CiaCyberOps which is a card game with an educational objective. He is strengthening his math skills and having fun. He has even hooked his mother and older brother on the game.

If I ask him if he wants to play CiaCyberOps with me he excitedly answers YES! This card game provides hours of family entertainment and is improving math and strategy skills.

I would highly recommend this game to anyone with middle to high school students.
